Quick guide for scanning

  1. Turn on all lights and open doors before scanning
  2. Scan the whole property (including all floors and any detached garage/porch) in one continuous scan
  3. Tilt the device slightly down and point the camera straight ahead towards the walking direction
  4. Focus on the floors, no need to show more than 3 feet (1 meter) of the wall – no need to scan ceilings
  5. Scan no closer than 5 feet (1.5 meters) and no farther than 11 feet (3 meters) from walls and furniture
  6. Turn in a calm way and back out of narrow spaces rather than turning around
  7. Scan small spaces through the door opening without entering the space
  8. You should only scan ceilings that are less than 7 feet
    Scan the ceiling at a slight upwards angle, so that the ceiling and other context is visible in the frame
    Do not scan directly under the ceiling you are capturing
    Do not scan the ceilings for over 5 seconds

Watch an example of a CubiCasa scan to see how it works in practice.
